2013 Cadaretta Springboard

2013 Cadaretta Springboard

 A selection combining our best-of-vintage Bordeaux varietal barrels, selected by our winemaker.

The Middleton Family has been working the land in Washington State for five generations. With Cadaretta the family aims to craft wines that stand among Washington’s best. The winery is named for a lumber schooner used by the family company in the first part of the 20th Century. The Middleton estate Southwind Vineyard is located just south of the city of Walla Walla. The winery is in the city of Walla Walla.

Springboard is a reserve-quality Bordeaux-varietal blend made from the top barrels of the vintage. In 2013, we selected only the very best in our cellar.

This is a very concentrated wine, with rich aromas and a big mouthfeel. It will benefit from a little time to breath, after pulling the cork. Intense aromas of black berry, black currant, and black raspberry that eventually give way to aromas of coffee grounds, nutmeg, allspice and a little black pepper. This big rich powerful wine exhibits flavors of black berry, black cherry, anise, vanilla, tar, and black pepper.
